To produce creative juices,
munches apples in the bathtub,
on the other hand,
rides a bus.

DAY 34 of 50 Days of Gratefulness
Today I am grateful for the buses, bus drivers and bus conductors who bring me home, safely, for five days a week.
My home’s 44 kilometers away from work and the fastest bus ride is more than an hour (that’s without traffic and with a driver in a rush! :D)
Aside from being my main mean of transportation, my bus rides were like plant beds where story ideas sprout everyday!
I still can’t figure out why but some of A Reading Writer’s hit stories were written when I am either sitting or standing on a bus.
The most recent was the short bus-ride-inspired fiction I posted early today.
The list of stories inspired by sudden-creativity-burst-on-a-bus are:
Seasons: Epilogue (I have written this for maybe more than 20 minutes while I kept on listening to Sara Bareilles’ Breathe Again, yes, on a bus.)
Mirror: A Vignette (I haven’t written this story on a bus but the main concept and idea was formed while I am standing on a bus!)
and of course The Yellow Bus! (What if this bus carries a terrorist whose aim is to blow us all up? This is the question that triggered this story. And yes, it occured when I am also standing on a bus!)
It’s like, amazing for me! 🙂
How about you?
Where or when does your creativity juices spring out?
What is your habit that generates ideas sprout?
